Your friends are going to Mexico. They talk about it every day, and you know it's only becasue they want to make you jealous. So turn the tables and tell them you're going to Mammoth!

Tanning: Better than Mexico. Mammoth is one of the sunniest ski resorts in the country, and tanning at high altitude on the snow is more efficient than on a beach. 

Partying: This is an OTL trip, but that doesn't mean there's no nightlife. From March 14-18, Elevation Ski Week will be in Mammoth. For those who don't know, Elevation is the largest gay ski week in the world, and they choose Mammoth for a reason. There's always something going on!

And saving the best for last, you get to go skiing and riding!

We'll stay in a house and maybe a condo as well. Obviously you don't have to come for the whole time; I'll arrange carpools based on when you want to ski (or not ski and just enjoy the mountains). Lodging will probably be around $25/night, and there are cheap season passes and perhaps discounted lift tickets available.

When you sign up on OTL, make sure to also fill out this Google Spreadsheet for carpool and lodging purposes: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Asniyux4ejMIdEtQVGJPU3RGanRqVDZ6RkI3aG1maVE 

Don't worry, you can change these dates later on. I just need to get an idea.

Unfortunately, we will likely not be able to take everyone who wants to come.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
